What Would Be A Good Replacement For Benicar And Generic Form

I am over 50 & like benicar for hbp the best, although i need

a generic for walmart pharmacy, would captopril replace it

or any other in generic form that would be good for me?

Is there a difference is captopril and kaxopril,(i think she said kaso,

i might be mispelling this one).

thank you P-S.

Answer

Hi P. Harrison,

The generic name for Benicar is olmesartan. Definitely work with your physician to determine which generic form would be an appropriate substitute for you.

All the best,
